Whoever said this game has bad Gfx mayb your tv is broke idk but the grafix are great. and online play is fun too.. Someone said it was boring cuzz all you do is kill ppl well what do you do in any online shooter game? (Thats the point) the movement is reallestic and fun LOVE THE GAME Have 20 hours into it and im only 40% done if you beat the whole game in 30 hours or less your just sticking to the story line and not doing all the other stuff there is to do!
I am not a fan of Westerns and not a fan of shooting games at all, mostly because I find both of them insult my intelligence and take me for a mindless trigger-happy fool killing things for the sake of killing. Red Dead Redemption is both of these things, but without their base qualities. There is an adequate WHY to everything, and their focus on realism of the Old West, from the quiet contemplation under a setting sun in a field of wild flowers to the consequences of turning outlaw and selfishly getting your way with a gun, makes the gameplay meaningful and not some slaughterfest. There is also many other things to do besides wielding a barrel at someone's face, like card games, skinning challenges, horse races, and a plethora of others that will keep one engaged and fully in the spirit, nothing out of place or breaking the desired mood. It doesn't hurt that the lands are expansive and beautiful, probably the most realistic and natural of any open world game. And the citizenry and wildlife are just as believable and not forced. This all culminates into something that really deserves the high acclaim that many review sites have given.

What can I say about this game? Well, it's amazing. This game has everything that a gamer could want. The characters and story aren't the most original but they are still great. The things you can do in this game are almost limitless, like starting a bar fight, kidnapping someone and putting them on train tracks, or getting drunk in a saloon, the options are many and they are all good. If you are the type of gamer who likes to play with friends online, this is the perfect game for you. Start an online multiplayer game and play with your friends, join in a posse or start your own, attack the many forts scattered across the map, or become a public enemy and see if anyone is man enough to fight you. The only downside to this game is the ending, why, because its the end of the game duh! It doesn't matter what type of gamer you are, this game is worth it.
